Is tlic Standard Oil company masquerad
ing n VI. N. Knapp" In order to Bell oil
to the Omnha Ons company?
Miss Ida M. Tarbell's story In MoClures
as to how the Standard Oil company
forced I. N. Knnpp tif Chanute, Kan.,
out of ft profitable business with the Omahn
atid Kanpas City Oas companies In crude
petroleum la considerably different from
the statement mode by Vice President
Clabangh of the. Omaha Gas company.
The obstacle to full and accepted belief
In the reported easy victory of Standard
OH. In this Instance, lies In the fact that
the Omaha Oas cdmpany Is still buying
oil from Mr. Knapp, and Mr. Knapp only,
so far as It Is aware.
A reporter for The Be was shown a
bill typewritten on stationery ' of the
Knapp Tank I.lne" and dated August 2.
1. It mentioned the price of a car of
oil shipped to the Omaha Gns company.
How is this bill to be reconciled to Miss
Tarbell's statement to the following effect?
independence at an expense of $7.50 a car
may mean bankruptcy. Whether It did or
not. Mr. Knapp felt it was too costly,
and In May, ISifl, he turned over his crude
oil to the Standard. Hnil henceforth that
conrern filled the contracts of the Omaha
and Kansas City gas works. Thus the
very small breeze of competition which
'was freshening the air of Chanute wns
stilled. Mr. Knapp's twenty cars were
" sidetracked and In March last, 1906. they
still stood Idle at Chanute.
Miss TarbrH'a Story.
The storr of Knapp as related In the
magazine is to the elTect that he went
Into the Chanute field In 1899 and found
a market for bis oil with the Omaha and
Kansas City Gas companies, that until
May, 1!X2,. things went well and the rail
roads made Mm fair rates, but that they
then Increased the weight as reckoned on
crude oil per gallon, the result amounting
to t'.GO a oar in freight rates. This oc
curred a week after Knapp had made con
tracts with the Omaha and Kansas City
gas 'works, and for eleven months he had
to fill his contracts at the disadvantage.
This la what Vice President Clabaugh
"The Omaha Gas company has not had
any dealings with the Standard Oil com
pany for over five years. About that long
ago bids were received from dealers for
supplying us with crude petroleum. Mr.
Knapp submitted the most satisfactory fig
ures. Ever since then we have bought all
the oil we used from Mr. Knapp, so far
as we know. Our dealings with him have
been with him personally and there has
been no Interruption In his. service. He
never complained to us about railroad
rates or Intimated that conditions had
made his contract with us valueless to him.
Are They Bring Buncoed r
"So far as I have any knowledge we are
still buying our oil from Mr. I. N. Knapp,
not I. E. Knapp, as the Tarbell story has
it. His present contract expires some time
next spring. We use about 3,000,000 gallons
crude petroleum a year. If Mr. Knapp
turned his contracts over to the Standard
OH people we certainly don't know any
Miss Tarbell says: ,
"What has the Standard OH company
to do with this manipulation? One who
knows the hlBtory of the Standard OH
company will not ask the question. That
is why Its history Is useful today. What
happened to Mr. Knapp happened to soores
of Pennsylvania refiners and shippers back
In the '70s and 'Ms and left hundreds of
cars sidetracked as hts were."
At the same time it Is shown that part.
If not all. of the story as given by the
author was taken from court records.
Incidentally the Omaha Oas company
would like to know If the Standard Oil
company is masquerading as I. N. Knapp.
LOW RATES FOR HORSE SHOW
Special Fares for Exhibition This Fall
Are Asked tt Railroads En.
. terlas; Omaha.
The Omaha Horse Show association is
bestirring Itself in the matter of securing
suitable rates for the show this fall and is
making application to all of the terminal
lines In Omaha or special rates. What the
association particularly asks Is a one-fare
rate for the round trip, covering all points
In Nebraska, and from points in Missouri,
Kansas and Iowa where the one are la
less than W. with the request that the tick
ets should be on sale three or four days
before the opening and the return limit to
expire about October IS.
Reason that the association assign for
these low rates are that one fare Is granted
for the fall festivities of the Ak-Sar-Ben
and low rates are prevailing all over the
country. At present the rate to Denver is
but J10 75, and low rates have been proven
to be a great help to railroads In the mat
ter of moving business. Certain railroads
are known to favor these rates and it is
anticipated that all will faU Into line.
While the horse show may not draw as
many people to the c(ty as the fall festivi
ties, there is every reason to expect a
larger attendance than at the initial show,
when thousands came from out of the city.
Promoters of the show say It la an Impor
tant event and because of It being part of
the Big Four circuit It tends to advertise
Omaha throughout the entire country more
largely than the carnival, which Is more of
a local event. It is further urged as a
reason for these rates that the terminal
lines should assist the Auditorium on gen
eral principles and the eo-operatlon of the
railroads is needed to make this event an

Two months ago the woman's husbarfj

she was evicted from her lodgings at Sev

Sine that time she has been helped by the
Associated Charities and the police. One
of her daughters became afflicted with
rheumatism. Her troubles were more than
